Joan Collins was bornon 23 May 1933 in Paddington, British, is Actress & Author. Joan Henrietta Collins is an actress and author who, after decades of playing minor roles in films and television rose to great fame with her portrayal of the vicious and revengeful Alexis Carrington Collins in the prime time television drama ‘Dynasty’. The beautiful actress is said to have resuscitated the then-struggling drama which during its second season seemed to be heading for cancellation. The first preference for the role was Sophia Loren who had turned it down. It was then offered to Collins who by then had only appeared in a series of B-Films and small television shows. Daughter of a theatrical booking agent, she made her stage debut at the age of nine. She went to the Royal Academy of Dramatic Arts and hoped of making it big in Hollywood. She made her feature film debut as a beauty contestant in the film ‘Lady Godiva Rides Again’. Because of her beauty, she was often offered roles of sultry and seductive women in B-Films. In spite of trying her best, she could not enter mainstream Hollywood or land substantial roles in major films. She made several guest appearances in television programs and low-budget films, and also started exploring a career as a writer. Till date she has authored many novels, non-fictions, and memoirs including the best selling novel, ‘Prime Time’.
